Stampin’ Up! TriFold Shutter Card

Happy Friday! Fun folds are just that, fun. And sometimes easier than they look. I’m sharing a trifold shutter card today that really is quite easy and is a real “show off”. It’s a card within a card. :O) I’ve used Fancy Flora DSP (again!) as it has what I call, a continuous pattern. To coordinate with that, I also used the Two-Tone Flora stamp set and it’s coordinating Two-Tone Dies.

Stampin' Up! Trifold Shutter Card with DSP

This begins with a full length of card stock 11 x 5 1/2, scored on the long side at 1 3/4, 3 1/2, 5 1/4 and 7. I used Petal Pink card stock for this. Burnish the score lines: mountain, valley, mountain and valley. The next step is to place this on the paper trimmer with the short side to the top and at 1 1/4. Cut from the 1 3/4 score line to the 5 1/4 score line. Turn it over and do the same on the other side. It should look like this.

Cut Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper: it’s helpful to use a DSP that has a continuous pattern and this works really well. Remove 1″ from the top of the 6×6 piece. With the long side at top, cut four pieces 1 1/2 x 5, keeping them in order. Adhere pieces 1 & 4 to the first & fourth panels of the card stock. With the bottom end of the two remaining pieces, trim to 1″ and attach to panels 2 & 3, following the continuing pattern. Turn around and with top of those two strips, cut 1″ from top. Attach those to the tops of panels 2 & 3. That leaves centers of panels 2 & 3 blank. Making certain to follow the continuous pattern of the DSP, trim the remaining piece that coordinates with panel 3. It should measure 1 1/2 x 2 1/2. Now cut a 2 3/4 square with a coordinating card stock. I chose Soft Suede. Cut another piece of Soft Suede 7 1/2 x 5, score on long side @ 3 3/4. Burnish and add to back 4″ panel of the Petal Pink card base. This is what makes the card within a card.

Cut a piece of Basic White 3 1/2 x 4 3/4 (cut 2) for the additional card panels. Cut a piece of Basic White 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 for the very front of the card. Adhere this square to the 2 3/4″ square.

Stamp the two panels that are 3 1/2 x 4 3/4: one is for the inside of the back card, while the other is for it’s front. Use Soft Suede ink to stamp the sentiment from Something Fancy stamp set and add to the ‘back’ card front. On the other panel, same size, stamp the flower from Two-Tone Flora stamp set, in stamped off Calypso Coral ink. Stamp the detail of that flower with full strength Calypso Coral ink. Adhere both to the appropriate panels.

Notice another panel of DSP on the opposite side of the stamped panel – yep.. that’s a piece of the Fancy Flora DSP, but the reverse side :O) All that’s left to do now is decorate the 2 1/2″ square on the card front. On a scrap of Basic White, stamp the flower from Two-Tone Flora stamp set in stamped-off Calypso Coral ink. Stamp the more details flower patten with full strength Calypso Coral ink. Die cut the flower with Two-Tone Flora Dies. Stamp two sets of leaves in Evening Evergreen ink as it coordinates with the DSP :O). Die cut with Two-Tone Flora Dies. Attach the two leaf sets to the back of the flower with dimensionals. See photo.

Add more dimensionals to the back of the flower. Attach a length of the Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent to the Basic White square. Attach flower over the ribbon to the Basic White square of the card front. With the card closed, add three large Iridescent Pastel Gems in Calypso Coral, then two small Iridescent Pastel Gems in Calypso Coral.

For the envelope… more Fancy Flora DSP to the envelope flap. For the envelope front, stamp the same flower from Two-Tone Flora stamp set with stamped-off Calypso Coral ink, and the detail stamp with full strength Calypso Coral ink. DONE!!!

This DSP is retiring and it’s stunning. The ribbon is also retiring, as is Soft Suede card stock & ink, and Evening Evergreen ink. The Iridesent Pastel Gems are also retiring.
